Nelson Mandela.

Here was a man that was wrongfully imprisoned for 27 years in a 8'X7' cell and had every reason to hate the people that put him there. Yet when he got out and became president of South Africa he put aside all anger and hate in the name of healing the wounds of his country and bring his people together. Nobody would've blamed him for bringing retribution to the white minority, but he instead brought friendship and unity. This man had a deeper love for his country and people than any man I have ever seen. He rose above the petty parts of the human condition and found the strength to move forward and thrive. Nelson Mandela is a great inspiration to me because he has shown the world that against all odds we can be better if we want to and that it is possible to fight our fate.

I invite everyone to learn more about this inspirational man by starting with his Wikipedia page.

Martin Glaude (Also known as Quill18 on Youtube). we happen to share the same first name but that's beside the point. I found Martin a couple of years ago, and ever since he's been such a great inspiration to me. He's the one that made me start wanting to write and even encouraged me to go through some tuff times with his videos. He has a great personality and is one of the greatest people I've ever seen!

COL Chamberlain. A college professor who cared for his men during the CIvil War., he was responsible for holding Little Round Top during the Battle of Gettysburg. He received 121 deserters and had only a little over 200 men, almost no ammo, and not enough rifles to give to the deserters. He gave all the deserters a second chance instead of hanging them. All 121 picked up a rifle by the end of Little Round Top, and he held it against over 1,200 Confederate Soldiers, even when running out of ammo. The fact he cared not for himself but his brothers in arms and his continuing perseverance that ultimately turned the tide of a war is truly inspiring to me.

I never had any specific inspiration figure during all my life, that's probably why I felt very lost when I grew up and it came to that time in your life(after High School), where you need to choose what you're going to do with your life. :p
